Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Promotion Carmelo Abela attends the annual wreath-laying on the Commonwealth Air Forces Memorial, organised by The Royal Air Force Association (Malta Branch). The memorial is dedicated to all Commonwealth airmen lost in action in the Mediterranean area and the Balkans during the Second World War and who have no known grave. It was built by what was then known as the Imperial War Graves Commission in memory of 2,301 airmen who lost their lives in the war and who have no grave.
